FIRE RESISTANT BUSHFIRE BUILDING

60 60 60 Fire Rated Wall - Fire Resistant Building Board,

BUSHFIRES & building protection Flame Zone BAL (FZ)

FireCrunch is 100% resistant to fire damage. Australia is a country regularly ravaged by dangerous bushfires of varying proportions. The loss of life and property has been substantial since the first European settlers arrived in 1788 and still regrettably continues today.

Aboriginal tribes were well used those occurrences and had a definitive policy of clearing bush around all areas of protective concerns. Today we call that an Asset Protection Zone (APZ), which carries certain specifications and requirements for those building in bush fire prone areas. The Rural (RFS) and Country fire services (CFS) are the best source of local information in your area.

As the name suggests, FireCrunch building boards are specifically designed to be a superior option in safety and fire protection. Through rigorous Australian NATA labs testing like the CSIRO and continuous development, we are redefining what it means to protect Australian homes and properties with an environmentally responsible low Co2 manufacturing process. We ensure the protection of homes and buildings in the unique Australian climate and environment with our all in one building board solution. We are proud to present our CSIRO certificated FireCrunch product range, with a Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 90/90/90 which only requires 1 x 10 mm thick sheet per side of steel frame (1.0 BMT).v up to 3 layers of 13mm plasterboard.

Through the development and various testing stages, it has allowed us to produce totally reliable, durable and eco-friendly building boards. FireCrunch can withstand temperatures of 1200⁰C and we meet the BAL FZ (Bushfire Attack Level Flame Zone) which reinforces our quality in terms of protection of buildings and life from the most dangerous BAL FZ bushfire conditions. Such quality of FireCrunch reinforces a high concern for our Australia wide customers’ safety and security, with ease of use and multi-beneficial features embedded in our fire rated building boards.

FireCrunch meets the maximum Flame Zone (FZ)

Australian standard tested bushfire building boards under AS 1530.8.2 (CSIRO).

FireCrunch has been rigorously tested by the CSIRO in a full scale bush fire simulation test carried out in Australia (2012).

Has a Fire Resistance Level (FRL) of 90/90/90.

Composition of magnesium oxide (MgO), a steel waste product (45%), mixed with non-organic minerals, bonders and mesh fibre composites.

FireCrunch contains no harmful toxins and chemicals including formaldehyde, formaldehyde, silica, asbestos, heavy metals, and organic solvents.

A building lining and cladding product eight to ten times stronger than plasterboard.

Virtually carbon neutral in product while being fire, flood, termite, mould, and impact proof.

MEDICAL & HEALTH VALUES

FireCrunch is moisture resistant and bacteria cannot grow or survive on our building boards, therefore it is well suited for hospitals medical centres, schools and other health concern areas.

Mould and mildew cannot easily form on FireCrunch, it is ideal for wet areas and humid conditions, where conventional building boards and plasterboard products are quickly destroyed.

Environment

  • FireCrunch is not a timber based product no trees are felled to make this product.
  • FireCrunch is manufactured from 45% waste MgO and is a 100% recyclable product.
  • During the manufacture process, kiln temperatures are 50% lower than cement based products around 650⁰C.
  • The percentage of Co2 emissions are therefore halved in manufacturing, compared to plasterboard.
  • During “carbonation”, while FireCrunch cures, it draws back 90% of the Co2 produced.
  • The net result is approximately a 5% Co2 pollution contribution, which makes it a virtually carbon neutral product.
